ATLANTA — U.S. News & World Report released its annual rankings of graduate business schools Wednesday, which includes the Evening MBA program at Emory University’s Goizueta Business School.

The Evening program ranked 13th, rising two spots from last year. The program has ranked in the U.S. News Top 25 for eight of the last nine years and currently ranks No. 8 in the nation according to Bloomberg Businessweek

The Full-Time MBA program moved into the Top 20 for the first time since 2013 in the U.S. News list, moving up two spots from last year to rank No. 19 in the nation.

“Rankings are a snapshot in time, and I’m thrilled to look at this photo and see our MBA programs among the best in the United States.” Dean Erika James said. “But we know there is more to consider. Rankings provide valuable insights, including areas we see as opportunities for improvement and strengths to maintain.”

Data from the Class of 2015 was used in the ranking, which is determined, in part, by reputation surveys, GMAT scores, GPAs of entering students and work experience.

Emory’s program is characterized by small class sizes and a schedule that fits students’ lives without interrupting them. A core business education provides knowledge for long-term success and short-term impact on the job. Students can choose from more than 90 electives and activities across more than 20 concentrations.

A career preview night is scheduled for March 31 and the next information breakfast will be on campus April 20. The next application deadline is April 22.
